There's info here with photos:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=46745251

Here's the jist of it:
Located in the Cabanas, building 9B, Coconino Cove is a semi-exclusive gathering place for networking, relaxing, working or playing.
Guests with Coconino Cove access will enjoy upgraded, semi-exclusive services and amenities, including:
Use of in-lounge iMac and PC stations, computer gaming consoles and flat screen televisions
Electronic device charging stations & boarding pass printing
Areas suitable for small groups to gather and meet in a relaxed setting
Assistance with dining reservations, ticket information and other special requests
Food & beverage offerings throughout the day
Conveniently, all Guests with Coconino Cove access will be located in building 9B during their stay. Guest rooms will be close together near the lobby and convention center.

Coconino Cove is open 7- 10 am and 5-10 pm, 7 days a week

We justified the extra cost because the breakfast they put out is more than enough to hold us over to lunch (we have free dining) and when making our schedule we made sure we allowed time in the lounge every evening for pre-dinner drinks (all of our dinner reservations are for 7p, so we'll get there when the lounge opens and stay 45mins to an hour, th ekids can snack and we'll drink).

We always book a preferred room, so the jump in cost wasn't that much in our case.

Try justifying the cost when you break it down into per day.

How many people are in your party?
Breakfast in the morning 7-10.

Lounge in the evening. Will you be having drink? They serve beer( ying ling, corona, heinekin) wine (red and white) and sangria which really was the wine with added fruit.

Snacks and coffee/tea/soda.

Considering beer is 8.00 at el centrto, a few cocktails in the evening it was a no brainer for us.

One other thing to consider is the prime room location. A lot of the die hard CSR fans who have multiple stays under their belt pay the $50 a night just to be guaranteed a room in Cabanas 9B. It is the premium location at CSR, some would say the premium location of the Mod resorts. Cabanas 9B has long been the most requested room location and people have said for years they would pay extra to guarantee a room there. Now they can!
